On Wednesday I updated the Development Roadmap [1] on the Xubuntu wiki.  I
note this here because one of the ongoing tasks is to review the packages
that are included in Xubuntu.  I've modified the road map categories a
little bit, and as of now the categories include:

- New objectives for the current release cycle (Lucid)
- Objectives carried over from prior release cycles
- Ongoing objectives
- Completed objectives.

I listed "Refresh Xubuntu Artwork," as a completed objective even though
it's really an ongoing task.  Perhaps we can establish that as an ongoing
objective and the relabel the previous objective to "Refresh Xubuntu Artwork
- Karmic."

If you wish to edit the content of the page, you'll need to go to a separate
page [2].  Thanks, all.
